After eight years in the making, the SheaDawn Park Way in Dublin will become a new hub in Pulaski County.
Jim Hager of Diversified Developers, along with the Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce, will host a groundbreaking ceremony for SheaDawn Park Way this Wednesday. The new Park Way sits over 100 acres of currently vacant land, according to Christiana Majakangas with the Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce.
The developers for the site have envisioned 30 acres of commercial real estate for businesses such as grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, and office spaces. Diversified Developers have also planned 82 acres of land with rail access for a possible manufacturing facility or warehouses in an effort to create jobs for the area, Majakangas said.
Hager believes SheaDawn Park Way will combat the fact that manufacturers do not always choose to move to the Pulaski area, sometimes due to a lack of options for corporate staff. However, as the Park Way will be located near Randolph Park, the commercial businesses in the front should attract more options, Hager said in the release.
The groundbreaking ceremony will be on Wednesday, July 23 from 5:30 p.m. until 8 p.m.
